Real Estate Tax Appeals
Our dedicated Real Estate Tax Appeals Practice is comprised of attorneys and carefully trained support staff who handle hundreds of appeals annually in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The practice possesses a thorough understanding of the intricate legal issues affecting investment real estate and real estate valuation. Our experience and expertise provide clients with unique insights to enhance their prospects of success.
Property taxes are typically one of the largest expenses for owners and operators of real estate. Real estate markets are dynamic and constantly evolving; reviewing a property’s assessment on an annual basis is a vital, but often overlooked, strategy in controlling the costs of real estate ownership. However, ascertaining whether an appeal is warranted and prudent is a complex decision which requires deliberate consideration of a variety of factors. Prior to filing an assessment appeal, our attorneys undertake a thorough analysis of each matter and formulate a strategy that addresses not only the particular circumstances of each property, but also the objectives and needs of every individual property owner.
Our attorneys have achieved significant tax reductions for a wide range of commercial, industrial, and special-use property owners. We have experience prosecuting appeals for apartment houses, office buildings, warehouses, manufacturing, industrial properties, commercial shopping centers, superregional malls, condominiums and co-ops, hotels and motels, country clubs, and nursing homes. We also have experience with appeals of large residential properties.
In addition to valuation appeals, the group also provides counsel regarding issues of exemption, abatement, farmland assessment, and condemnation.
